Join Us Today for the MRL Statewide Meeting
Join us today, December 6th, for a presentation by Nancy Valko, past president of Nurses for Life. Ms. Valko will discuss the decline in medical ethics and the impact of that on the right to life in our state and nation. Ms. Valko has both personal and professional experience in medical and ethical decisions for end-of-life care and non-heart beating organ donations.    

The presentation will be of special interest to all those in the medical profession as well as those making end-of-life legal and medical decisions. Other presentations will include an update on the legal challenges to Obamacare and the latest educational and legislative information.  

The event is at Immaculate Conception Parish, Kertz Hall, 1206 E. McCarty, Jefferson City, 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. Kertz Hall is the basement of the largest building on the Immaculate Conception Parish campus, the grade school. Go around to the back of that building (that is easiest by entering the lower parking lot from Clark street) and enter the door with MRL signs posted.  

Please arrive 10-15 minutes early. Lunch is provided with free-will offering. Registration is required. Email or call righttolife@missourilife.org or 573-635-5110
